    All right, I admit that my classical music knowledge is not what it should be, so I'd like to know what the name of a very famous piece of classical music is-it's used in movie trailers a lot, and has recently been so overused it has begun to get parodied (South Park used it in it's trailer, I believe). The most famous use of it would be during the satanic/blood drinking/love scene in The Doors. Is this a piece called Requiem?

    "Palladio" by the London Philharmonic/Karl Jenkins.

    If you do a search for an album titled "Diamond Music" at CDNow, you can hear a little clip of it. Track 1.
